Johnson Exit Makes For Sinclair Entrance

Out goes one England winger and in comes another, albeit with extra pace on board...

25 year old Adam Johnson was one of Roberto Mancini's first signings and his clear and present skills made him a firm favourite in Manchester, yet a favourite who increasingly tended to disappoint rather than excite. Time and again he all too often faded out of a contest and just didn't have the required zip over the initial yards when in full back attacking possession. City are a club going places and with a title to defend and another European campaign imminent, it's been decided at SportCity that AJ isn't the man to be a part of Mancio's wing options. No more chances to shine are forthcoming.

As AJ heads for Sunderland with regular starts assured and a City transfer profit banked, BBC Radio Wales has revealed after Swansea thumped West Ham to go top of the league that The Swans have accepted a bid for their goalscoring flying 23 year old winger Scott Sinclair thought to be in the region of 5 million.
